Re:Savannah Restaurant Week
We ate at Alligator Soul last night...$30 for 3 courses during Restaurant Week. I'd have to say it was a bargain, especially compared to the prices on the regular menu which were high, but the menu looked good. We started with their Belvedere martini flight...3 small martinis on a tray. It was a good presentation, and we split them. There was a cosmo, dry and citrus-y, not sweet as some I've had and better than I expected. We also had a dirty martini and a citrus infused one. All very good. My husband opted for the house salad, which he really liked (I loved the crouton I stole from him). I had what was purported to be a cup of shrimp and grits, but in reality it was a large serving. It was nicely spiced and full of sausage and a few nice sized shrimp. We both got smoked roast beef for the main entree. It came with a horseradish sauce, mashed potatoes and thin al dente green beans. The beef was very flavorful but a small pile of very thin slices, not what I expected, but it was very good. Mine was medium rare as I wanted it, my husband's a little more done (also his choice). For dessert, they had a small white/dark chocolate mousse cake, the mousse balanced on a nice piece of chocolate cake. It was delicious! The only wrong note was that the service seemed a little uneven and poorly paced. Our waiter was great, but the timing of the drinks ( a very long wait) and the other courses could have been better. Looking around, the service at everyone's table was proceeding at about the same pace. We weren't in a rush, however, and it was a good evening and dinner at a good price. On to 700 Drayton tomorrow night!
